‘For the Love of George’ Draws Tate Donovan, Kristen Johnston, Rosanna Arquette

Tate Donovan, Rex Lee, Shaun Sipos, Kristen Johnston and Rosanna Arquette have joined Nadia Jordan in the romantic comedy “For the Love of George,” which has started shooting in Los Angeles.

Jordan is producing “For the Love of George,” which she co-wrote with Hayley Nolan. Maria Burton (“A Sort of Homecoming”) is directing.

The story follows the plight of a jilted British woman who comes to Los Angeles, after discovering her husband is cheating on her, with the fantasy of meeting her ultimate dream man — George Clooney. Through a funny series of adventures and near misses, she comes to learn that her destiny is in her hands, not anyone else’s.

Arlene Nelson (“A Mighty Wind”) is the cinematographer.

“It is such an honor to produce a film about female empowerment that also recognizes many powerfully talented women in front of and behind the scenes of the entertainment industry,” said Jordan. “I believe that ‘For the Love of George’ is both timeless, in subject matter, and timely and relevant to some of the robust gender discussions that are currently taking place in and about the entertainment business.”

A portion of the proceeds will also be donated to the Not on Our Watch charity founded by Clooney, Don Cheadle, Matt Damon, Brad Pitt, David Pressman and the late Jerry Weintraub. Jordan credits the comedy feature as being inspired by Clooney and his humanitarian work after reading Cheadle and John Prendergast’s book of the same name in which they suggested readers get creative with ways in which to spread the charity’s mission.

Donovan is providing the voice of Mowgli in Disney’s “The Jungle Book.” Lee is a regular on the sitcom “Young & Hungry.” Arquette stars in “Frank & Lola” alongside Michael Shannon and Imogen Poots.
